theage.com.au has sunk to a new low:
If you’re struggling to read the caption below that woman’s breasts and the litre jugs of beer they’re swilling, it says “Drink in the atmosphere: Testing out the best beer gardens in the home of Oktoberfest.” And next to that, below the picture of the poverty stricken young’un drinking mud out of a plastic bottle, it says “Ever thought about how you can make a real difference in a child’s life? Sponsor a child.”
I know stuff like this isn’t uncommon on The Age’s website, but come ON!* This is beyond the pale.**
*Since reloading The Age’s homepage, I now notice that there’s an ad for a bank next to the busty beer wenches of Oktoberfest.
**Apologies to my fellow Churls, Alex and Nick, for using this offensive idiom.
